And the Mountains Echoed
Books | Fiction / Literary
An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else.Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

"I really liked this book but it isn’t as good as “the Kite Runner” and “A thousand Splendid sons”."
"This book captured my interest from the beginning and held it until the last word written. The characters came to life on each page and I felt connected to each one. The words spoken etched into heart and the backdrop of Afghanistan- the good and bad- will never be forgotten. The heartache of the land seeps through the pages."
"Perfection from start to finish"
"This book was an okay story. Maybe I had a tough time because I came in with such high expectations. I loved the author's previous novels. I just thought the story skipped around too much and there was too much time spent on certain side plots that were really not connected to the main characters."
